The Stages of Prolapse

What should I look for?

There are several types of grading systems that Doctors use to describe the severity of prolapse, 1 (first-degree) being the mildest and 4 (fourth-degree) being the most severe.

The following are stages of vaginal prolapse to look out for:

Kegel8 are Experts
Stage 1 (or first-degree) prolapse:
A woman may not even know she has it, quite often this is discovered during a routine pelvic floor exam.
Second-degree prolapse:
There will be symptoms such as heaviness, dragging feeling or painful intercourse.
Third-degree prolapse (also known as procidentia):
Physical characteristics will be felt as well as seen, sometimes a lump will be felt inside the vagina.
Forth-degree prolapse:
This stage will be visible, extremely uncomfortable and protruding out of the vagina.

The following are stages of uterine (or womb) prolapse to look out for:

First-degree prolapse:
The uterus droops into the upper portion of the vagina.
Second-degree prolapse:
The uterus falls into the lower part of the vagina.
Third-degree prolapse:
The cervix, which is located at the bottom of the uterus, sags to the vaginal opening and may protrude outside the body. This condition is also called procidentia, or complete prolapse.
Fourth-degree prolapse:
The entire uterus protrudes entirely outside the vagina. This condition is also called procidentia, or complete prolapse.

Comes complete with an easy exercise plan, created by Amanda Savage, to get results in 12 weeks!

Here at Kegel8, we are all too aware of the discomfort, not to mention the anxiety, that is caused by pelvic organ prolapse. So, if you are experiencing an uncomfortable ‘dragging’ sensation, are struggling with bladder and bowel control, bowel emptying and a lack of intimate sensation, you are certainly not alone! Indeed, more common that you may realise, pelvic organ prolapse affects millions of people worldwide. And we are extremely familiar with the impact it has on both physical and emotional well-being, as well as on life in general.

It’s true that, left untreated, the symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse will simply worsen over time. However, they should by no means be accepted as an inevitability! Indeed, regular pelvic floor exercise has been proven to build muscle and tone, creating a thicker support shelf for the organs to rest on. This essentially holds them up and keeps them in place. In addition, much like any other exercise, it builds strength and tone to ensure the muscles do not tire easily and can react quickly to provide additional support during strenuous activities. This improved endurance and strength also helps with bladder and bowel control. So, by simply performing regular pelvic floor exercise, you can get your life back on track!

The included easy exercise plan was created by Amanda Savage to prevent, treat, and alleviate the associated symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse. It is proven to build muscle and tone and create a thicker support shelf for the organs to rest on, essentially holding them up and keeping them in place. In addition, this simple exercise regime will improve endurance and ensure the muscles do not tire as easily, so that they can react quickly and provide the optimum support when performing strenuous activities. This improved endurance and strength also helps with bladder and bowel control and the contractions have been shown to calm the nerves responsible for a sensitive bladder. The plan even encourages the user to practise contracting their muscles alongside the machine, which prepares them for ‘real life’ scenarios when they don’t have access to the machine.

So, why opt for an electronic pelvic floor exerciser rather than performing your Kegels independently?

It is thought that many women push downwards when performing independent pelvic floor exercises, which, rather than strengthening the muscles, can lead to further damage. In addition, it can be difficult to locate and target the correct muscles, making exercise less effective. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 V2 Electronic Pelvic Toner removes the guesswork and essentially acts as a Sat-Nav for your pelvic floor muscles, correctly targeting and stimulating a contraction within them using a small electric current. These contractions build strength and tone in a matter of weeks! With 20 clinically proven pelvic floor exercise programmes which vary in frequency, intensity and duration, the Ultra 20 is proven to treat a variety of different conditions, including pelvic organ prolapse and bladder/bowel control and emptying. And, in addition to tailored programmes, the specific 12-week exercise plans created by Amanda Savage advise exactly how the device should be used, depending upon the condition, to ensure the very best treatment.
